A letter from King's College Hospital about their Play fund
We have a Play and Youth team that office a service for all our inpatients. We offer therapeutic sessions for relaxation, outlet of feelings, distraction and fun. We create individual programmes for our long term patients. Free painting, collage, sticking, junk modelling, making and playing with play dough and clay, cooking, creating hospital journey stories through drawing, words and photos. We have a hospital school where a variety of art activities are included in the programme. We have an entertainment programme with 2 magic shows a month, music entertainer for under 6's as well as a pantomime.
We do use a lot of resources daily in our service and are most appreciated of people like yourself who contribute in making a hospital stay better.
